TIME-STAMPED SHOW NOTES:
- [00:27] Today’s Topic: Why Copying Your Competition Doesn’t Work Anymore
- [00:37] In marketing, things change constantly.
- [01:40] What has worked for others in a given time span, won’t work in the future because it has already been done to death.
- [02:20] Copying means you are not the visionary, you are the follower. This will leave you with an inferior product or service.
- [03:10] Every few months, Google rolls out algorithm updates.
- [03:30] SEO from 10 years ago won’t work today.
- [04:15] If you look at Drift or Intercom, they didn’t copy the competition.
- [04:41] Drift always changes how they launch new features.
- [05:15] Product Hunt didn’t work for Neil as well as it did for Drift.
- [05:40] Always look for new channels and make sure you’re taking an omni-channel approach.
- [06:12] That’s it for today!
